Saxon

2

South London meets The Wild West. Seriously.

The grit and grunge of the titular conurbation (an abandoned South London estate demolished after filming), is the best character in this spiky-butmuddled micro-budget comedy-thriller.

It packs the occasional pointed punch –mostly at fresh-out-of-jail Eddie (Sean Harris), who’s hired to find an AWOL TV quiz winner by an old flame.

First-timer Greg Loftin’s vision can be erratic, but it’s a quirky, aspirational enterprise backed by a po-faced turn from Harris.

The extras really add to the sense of moviemaking in real-life trenches.
